Blendtec plans to expand Orem facility

Blendtec, which gained notoriety by blending anything from an iPhone to a Wii remote or a glow stick, will expand its manufacturing facilities in Orem. Blendtec will add 100,000 square feet, or 59 percent, to its 170,000-square-foot facility. The company will add more than 100 new jobs in the "coming years," Blendtec in a statement. When finished, the new facility will include a cafeteria for employees and a health care clinic with medical and dental offices for employees' families. The expansion to the facility is designed to allow greater in house marketing for the American-made blenders, which are sold in 90 countries across the globe. Deseret News
